M was a dish of mince;
It looked so good to eat! Papa, he quickly ate it
And said, "This is a treat!"
N was a Nut that grew
High up upon a tree; Papa, who could not

"That's much too high for me!"
O was an Owl who flew                                        P was a little Pig,
All in the dark away, Papa said, "What an owl you   Went out to take a walk; Papa he said, "If

Why don't you fly by day?"                                    He'd all turn into Pork!"
